Probably the most anticipated release from Tatuaje for many people is the Fausto line. In a year at IPCPR where Ecuadorian/Connecticut shade tobacco is making for a lot of cigars outside the full strength and full body range, this cigar was one many people were looking forward to.
I apologize in advance for not having a quality picture to post, but I do have some good information to share on this cigar. One thing where the Fausto gets its strength is from leveraging higher primings from the tobacco.
Here is a high level breakdown of this cigar line:
Wrapper: Ecuador Habano Maduro
Filler: Nicaraguan including Jalapa/Esteli Ligero
There are four core vitolas available. There also is a fifth vitola dubbed “Fausto Avion”. The plan is for the Avion to produce a different vitola year to year. The 2011 Fausto Avion is a perfecto.
FT127 – Robusto: 5 x 54
FT140 – Robusto Extra: 5 1/2 x 52
FT153 – Toro: 6 x 50
FT166 – Short Churchill: 6 1/2 x 48
Avion (2011) – Perfecto Grande: 6 3/4 x 48/52
